History

Baxter Estates owes much of its history to the homestead settlement of "Cow Neck" built in 1673 by John Betts and Robert Hutchings, this still stands on its original site at the corner of Central Drive and Shore Road, overlooking Manhasset Bay. In c. 1741 this property was purchased by Oliver Baxter, maps of the time show that, perhaps, an entire wigwam village may have been located on Baxter's land, this belonged to the Matinecock Indians.

The Baxters, who were shipbuilders, whalers and sea captains retained the property until the 19th Century; Hessian troops were quartered in the house during the Revolutionary War and, in 1895, the first library of Port Washington met in the parlor of the Baxter house on Shore Road. The residence is now a designated historic building.

The Village of Baxter Estates was incorporated in 1931.
